Lewandowski: I Don’t Know Why I Was Fired, But ‘I Have No Regrets’

Monday on CNN, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s recently ousted campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said while he doesn’t know why he was fired, he was “proud” of what he was able to do with candidate Trump and that he had “no regrets.”

When asked why he was fired, Lewandowski said, “I don’t know. I don’t know the answer to that. But what I know is what we’ve been able to achieve in this election cycle has been historic. We had a candidate who in June of last year, announcing he is going to run for president with no elected office experience in a field with 156 other candidates in the race that’s gone on to something historic, almost 14 million votes and fundamentally changed the way people look at politics. I’m proud to be a small part of that and running as the outsider of this campaign which he has done, running against the corrupt Washington, DC, establishment and political correctness has been something I’ve been proud to be a part of. Things change as the campaign evolves and a general campaign that is well funded giant organization like the Clinton campaign is very different than running against those smaller primary state elections. Even when it was a big day.”

He continued, “What I think is that the voters have a binary decision coming up on election day. They can either vote for Hillary Clinton and her liberal policies or put someone in place to change Washington. And I will do everything I can to make sure the latter of those two happens, which means Donald Trump is elected president. If I can do that inside the campaign, it’s a privilege. If I can do that outside the campaign, that’s also a privilege.”

He added, “I had a nice conversation with Mr. Trump and said to him, it’s been an honor and privilege to be part of this and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I think as you look at how small this team has been and how close knit this team has been, it’s really important to know there are highs and lows in every campaign and we’ve been through them together and we need to continue with the RNC to utilize the resources they have available to us. It’s been a great privilege, and look, I wouldn’t change one second. The hardest part for me has been just not being able to spend time with my family the last 18 or 19 months. But I would not look back. I have no regrets. It’s such a privilege and honor to have been a small part of this, to learn and experienced what he’s been able to achieve. It’s been truly amazing.”
